Sony crowned TrustedReviews Brand of the Year for 2013

Sony has been crowned Brand of the Year at the 2013 TrustedReviews Awards, one of four categories won by the Japanese giant.

Following a number of years in the shadows of Samsung, Apple and Google, 2013 was the year Sony put itself back in the limelight, improving its hardware ranges across the board and appeasing gamers with the launch of the PS4.

Having reinvigorated its smartphone offerings with the Sony Xperia Z1, produced a viable iPad rival in the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and created a range of TV and AV products to rival the likes of Samsung and LG, the manufacturing giant is back on fine form.

With the PS4 having been confirmed earlier this week to have beaten the rival Xbox One to claim the 2013 TrustedReviews Console of the Year crown, Sony has today been confirmed to have taken three other titles.

As well as being named Brand of the Year for 2013, Sony has also won awards for Projector of the Year and the Best TV over £750.

A year in which Sony dominated the home entertainment scene, the company’s Sony Bravia KD-65X9005A was been dubbed king of the current break of 4K TV monsters while the Sony VPL-VW500ES, although on the pricey side is arguably the best projector we have seen to date.

In our review of the product we described the Sony VPL-VW500ES as “a genuinely significant moment in AV history. It makes truly cinema-sized 4K video playback for the home a tangible, (almost) affordable reality for the very first time.”

Congratulations Sony on a great year.
